WSCU's unique location and geographic assets provide a variety of outdoor opportunities that complement our campus resources such as our labs, classrooms and student facilities. Check out our webcams to see why WSCU and the Gunnison Valley are great places to live and learn.
Campus and Gunnison Valley
Perched on top of Cupola Hill, this camera allows you to see the entire City of Gunnison and the WSCU campus. It also captures great view there are excellent views of the Palisades, Carbon Peak, and the San Juan Mountains including Uncompaghre Peak. This camera displays live-motion video with various presets for viewing.
This unit is mounted on the northwest corner of the Savage Library. This camera displays live-motion video and is user-controllable. This camera rotates nearly 340°, and we've established some commonly visited presets to give you quick one-click access to good views of Crawford Hall and the south side of the University Center.
Note: Your computer must have Java installed and activated to view and/or control any of our cameras that include the user-controllable feature. To share the user-control equitably among our many visitors, we have limited control to one minute if there is someone waiting for their turn to control the camera.
Taylor Hall Quad
